This is definitely one of the hidden spots on the Buda hills. I suggest everyone to walk by this place even though it only consists of this one monument and a nice part around.

A very nice spot with all the great philosophers. The area is big and quite lovely and it it only 15 minutes away from Citadel.

In a world of so much turmoil, I wish that this setting was real. Abraham, Echnaton, Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tse, Mahatma Gandhi, Daruma Taishi and Saint Francis are all standing in a circle. The symbolism is so dramatic, showing that different cultures and religions can...More

Once you have walked along the river head up the hill towards this garden. It's a bit of a trek and in the hot weather it was challenging! It is worth it though to see the garden but also the views of the city and...More

2007, 2009, 2013, and 2016. This place I found it by mere chance when wandering around as a tourist in 2007. I was deeply touched when I saw for the first time this timeless representation of humanism, in art. Let yourself be pulled by the...More

While the attraction is just a couple statues of "philosophers", including Saint Francis of Assissi, Jesus Christ and Abraham, it is one of those places where locals would gather to enjoy some time (and wine) together, the views and a pleasant, tranquil afternoon on the...More

The view from here is amazing. There are not so many tourists as other venues of Gellert Hill. Nice stopover before you walk up to the Citadel.

Take a cab here early in the morning and gulp in the city views. The scenery is great and way down takes you across the Danube to the main streets of the city

We stopped at this Garden on our day tour of Budapest. Our guide said the artist was Wagner Nandor, Hungarian, of course. He called the garden, the Garden of Mutual Understanding. We took lots of photos. Great views from this garden.

Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing
scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A
funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the
hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and
Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on
top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the
landscape with its imposing 19th century construction,
a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being
